Sealed Source Safety Training for Ni-63 ECD Sources. Radiological & Environmental Management Purdue University. Training Goals. Basic Radiation Safety Principles Familiarization with Regulations Purdue’s Policies and Procedures. Why do I need training?.
Radiological & Environmental Management
Ni-63 decays by low energy
Due to the low energy of the beta particle, contamination
control is the only factor needed.
All dose limits include exposure from both internal and external sources.
These effects are not possible under any circumstances
with ECD sealed sources
If the integrity of the ECD source is maintained there is
no measurable radiation exposure.
If there is damage to the ECD or gas chromatograph
please notify REM and a survey will be performed.
The goal is to prevent unauthorized access
or use of radioactive materials.
